25 Weeks - Pregnancy #3

Each Sunday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I did this with my pregnancies with Hadley and with Jack, as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on. 

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  25 weeks

Size of baby:  Baby Girl is 9 or so inches long (crown to rump)--the size of an eggplant--  12 or so inches crown to feet

Total weight gain/loss: At my appointment last Friday, the scale showed that I've gained 15 pounds so far. Holy.  Moly.

Maternity clothes:  Pajamas, shorts, maxi skirts, and shirts.  Maternity dresses and tops.

Gender:  A sweet baby girl :)

Movement:  She was very, very active during both non-stress tests I had last week, but other than those days, either I'm too busy to notice or she's in a position that I don't feel her as often.

Sleep:  Sleep has been decent.  A few nights in a row my back has really been giving me trouble, and I've found it difficult to sleep.

What I miss:  Hmmm.  Walking to the park without being exhausted by the time we get there!

Cravings:  Sweets

Symptoms:   I've had some sciatic nerve pain this week and a little bit of reflux.

Exercise:  Just walking to the park or in the neighborhood.  Nothing exciting.

Belly Button in or out:  Well, my sister noticed it this weekend, THROUGH MY SHIRT, so it must be out.  Bluh.

Wedding ring on or off: On :)

Happy or moody most of the time:  Both.  Seriously.  Each day is a mix of the two.

Looking forward to:  I guess my non-stress test tomorrow.  I like listening to her heartbeat for 20 mins and feeling her move so often.

Best moment this week:   Getting to see Baby Girl on the ultrasound I had on Friday.  The baby's heart rate dipped below where they'd like to see it go once while being monitored, so I had to have an ultrasound to check that things were ok.  She had the hiccups while we watched her, and we saw her take a few test breaths :).

25 Weeks
Yes, I realize this is a day late.  And, yes I also realize there's no picture.  I had a rough night Saturday night, and Jack's naps were wonky Sunday, so I stayed in pajamas until way late in the day, and that change only occurred because I was going for a walk.  If The Husband has time before class this afternoon, maybe he'll take a picture for me.  If not, it's no biggie :)

If you haven't voted on Baby Girl's name, take a minute and hop on over here to do so!


  1. Looks like you've had quite a few votes for the baby's name! And, I was soooo good and did not reveal your chosen one to your Aunt Jan!!! :) Love you.
